While that seems really cute and you say appropriate for yalls style, it still seems a little overboard and very attention getting. Could yall compromise and have him wear it, pink and all, at the rehearsal dinner instead?

I guess if I were in that situation I would ask myself if after the wedding it’s something I would even care about.  If you want pictures a certain way or absolutely despise the color, I would try to work out a compromise.  If it’s a mild frustration, I would just let it go (especially since he’s showing interest in something specific about the wedding).  

Would it be possible to have the Bridesmaid or Best Man wear the tie later in the evening (ex. during the reception) and have a more neutral tie for the ceremony and majority of the pictures?

Ha I understand guys and their friends and how crazy they can be together. I really do like the idea but it’s something I would think of for the rehearsal, bachelor party, or like @evabostonterrier suggested, maybe later in the reception. I just wouldnt want it for the ceremony or pics.

Isnt it funny how guys pick the most random things to want to have a say in and then theyre so adament and wont back down?! Lol my Fiance is very serious about our cake toppers and was very upset when he found out I just planned on doing our initial and flowers. He insisted on the bride and groom and I really didnt care so I let him have it.

Anways, I digress…I think I could live with the reception if that’s how he’ll compromise. However, it seems a little unfair to your Maid/Matron of Honor, I mean she’s not recognized. Could you do a little button or something for her to wear since he has the tie? Would you be up for that?

Another idea… maybe you could kind of turn it around on them – during a few (like 1 or 2) of the pictures, what if you all had on something kind of silly with your titles – a sash, tie, hat, whatever.  I only suggest this because you talked about wanting a whimsical/ fun feel and if it’s just one or two pictures, they might turn out kind of cute, but it wouldn’t overwhelm the entire event.  (And if they turned out to be ridiculous, you can just pretend that you never took them haha).
